Factors That Affect Cost of Invisalign Treatment

The cost of Invisalign treatment is affected by the following factors :

The severity of your misalignment

The more complex your orthodontic problem, the longer it will take to correct and the more expensive it will be. So you should expect a higher cost for  Invisalign if you have a more severe case of malocclusion, which is a severe case of overbite or underbite.

The length of your treatment

Invisalign treatment typically takes about 12 months for adults, although it may be shorter or longer depending on the individual case. Treatment for teens generally takes about 9 to 18 months. The length of your treatment will affect the cost because of the number of aligners that are included.

The number of aligners required

You will need to wear a new set of aligners every two weeks. The number of sets you will need will depend on the severity of your misalignment. A typical  case will require between 18 and 30 sets of aligners. The more sets you need, the higher the cost.

The number of office visits required

You will need to visit the dentist or orthodontist every four to eight weeks so they can check your progress and give you new aligners. The number of visits will depend on how quickly your teeth are moving. If you need additional treatments such as tooth extractions or gum disease treatment, this will add to the overall cost of your Invisalign treatment. [1]

Your location

Invisalign treatment is typically more expensive in larger cities and metropolitan areas due to the higher cost of living. In Michigan, you can expect fair costs in Monroe and Jackson, while the average price in Detroit is significantly higher.

 

Your orthodontist’s fees

Orthodontists charge different fees for Invisalign treatment, so it’s important to do some research to find an experienced provider who charges a fair price.

The experience of your orthodontist or dentist

Highly experienced providers tend to charge more for their services. However, you can be confident that you will receive quality care from our team of skilled and experienced dental professionals at Pinnacle Dental Group.

Your dental insurance

Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment, so be sure to check with your provider to see if you are eligible for coverage.

What Makes Up The Cost of Invisalign Treatment?

The total cost of your Invisalign treatment will consist of the following:

\

Cost of aligners

\

Orthodontist or dentist fees

\

Cost of any additional treatments (e.g., tooth whitening)

Cost of  Aligners

The cost of your aligners will make up the majority of your Invisalign treatment cost. The price of your aligners will depend on the severity of your misalignment and how many aligners you will need. Aligners are priced per unit, so your total dollar payment will depend on the number you need.

Orthodontist or Dentist Fees

The next biggest cost associated with Invisalign treatment is the fees charged by your orthodontist or dentist. These fees will cover the consultation, X-rays, fittings, and adjustments made to your aligners throughout treatment. 

Cost of Additional Treatments

In some cases, your orthodontist may recommend additional treatments in addition to Invisalign. These treatments could include things like teeth whitening, bonding, or gum contouring. The cost of these additional treatments will vary depending on the specific treatment being received.

The bottom line is that the cost of Invisalign treatment can vary widely depending on a number of factors. However, on average, you can expect to pay between $3,500 and $8,000 for your treatment, without factoring in dental insurance. If you have dental insurance, your policy may cover a portion of the cost of Invisalign. Be sure to check with your insurance provider to see if they offer any coverage for orthodontic treatments. [2]

Potential Additional Expenses During Invisalign Treatment

While Invisalign is generally a very effective and affordable treatment option, there are some potential additional expenses that you should be aware of. First, if your teeth are particularly crooked or crowded, you may need to have one or more “interproximal reductions” (or IPRs). This is a procedure in which your orthodontist will trim away a small amount of tooth enamel in order to create more space in your mouth. IPR cost (charged per tooth) will form part of your bill.

If you need any additional treatments during your Invisalign treatment (such as teeth whitening, bonding, or gum contouring), the cost of these additional treatments will vary depending on the specific treatment being received. 

Some dental insurance plans will provide coverage for Invisalign. If you have dental insurance, you should check with your insurer to see if they provide any coverage for Invisalign before beginning treatment.
